The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

6 July 2006

Are the big deals finished?

The Oklahoman's main hoops guy, Darnell Mayberry, thinks so: he's already predicting the starting five for next season's Hornets, and really, it's hard to argue with this placement:

  1. Chris Paul, point guard
  2. Peja Stojakovic, shooting guard
  3. Desmond Mason, small forward
  4. David West, power forward
  5. Tyson Chandler, center

Still to come: the departure of Rasual Butler (probably) and Arvydas Macijauskas (almost definitely).

And I'd like to wish P. J. Brown well as he moves to Chicago for what may be his last season: if the NBA has an Elder Statesman, it's P. J.
